A public policy expert focusing on energy and sustainability by training, I've always focused, in my various professional engagements, on producing long-lasting positive change in Romania. I worked for large international organizations (World Bank), multinationals (OMV Petrom, Deloitte), national governments and think tanks. I've done trainings on public policy, energy policy and corporate governance and I am the co-author of a textbook on public policy for civil servants. I am an active contributor to Romanian civil society, as an affiliate member to the Aspen Institute and as the co-founder of Romania’s first fact-checking platform. I studied political science and economy at Bucharest University, New York University and Hertie School of Governance, Berlin. With Ashoka, I resumed my older passion for social innovation, which determined me to organize the first summer school on social entrepreneurship in Romania, shortly after completing my mandate as Romania’s first UN Youth Delegate.
